offense against president obama? you can't attack him from the right wing position, because obama is center right any way. and you can't go further right or you would like crazy. i would attack him from the left. you say, mitt romney is not the progressive, you're right. who cares. the media is not going to call that out. if mitt romney did a full attack on president obama from a progressive perspective, that would actually work, and he would get to say i care about the middle class this guy obviously doesn't. how would he do it? let me show you the numbers, we have 8.1% unemployment. if you add in the 8.2 million under employed, and the 2.5 million people who say they would love a job but are discouraged and not looking any more you actually got 23 million people in this country who want a job and who can't get one. i say, president obama what did you do? you said you're for the middle class but that's 23 million people looking for a job and you didn't give them one. you may say that sounds fairly standard. let's get more into the numbers. i would go to the food stamp program. there

why that vision would be better than the path that we're on right now under president obama. i think if governor romney stays at the, you know, at the visionary level where he offers a better path forward, then i think that'll answer voters' concerns. i don't think he has to get into specific policy. he does need to be able to defend some of the economic policies that he's put forward, but i think he needs to really more than that advance a vision for the country, and the difference in philosophy of the role of government in shaping the economy and more importantly in the lives of every american. jenna: so you're saying bigger picture, romney needs to go big picture, share his vision. would that also help him on the likability side? we continue to hear, hey, this is all about likability, this is a vote that many people make with their heart, not necessarily with their mind? >> i absolutely think it would. i think, first of all, if he's able to pin blame for the economy on the president, governor romney's numbers will start to come up. it's a teetertotter. if the president goes down,

[ mitt romney ] there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what... who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it... and they will vote for this president no matter what... and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >>> monday night football action. the bears on the road to face the cowboys. it was a tough game for tony romo. the cowboys quarterback got intercepted five times. the two were returned for bear touchdowns. his countser part jay cutler kept mistakes to a minimum with 257 yards and two touchdowns. chicago won 34-18. >> there you go. it is the talk of the town. the nationals clinched the national league east title. when the braves lost last night.
